Materials Chalkboard Paintbrush Dark and colored construction paper Ice or ice in ice pop mold Instructions Blackboard Masterpiece You can skip the chalk and eraser for this instant chalkboard activity. All your child needs is a paintbrush and a cup of water to create dark swirls in the residual chalk dust. More Water Painting Give her that same paintbrush and water, then let her create a temporary work of art on dark construction paper. Or head outside and have her paint on the sidewalk. Ephemeral Ice Drawing Here's a very cool project for a hot day. Supply your child with several sheets of colored paper and an ice cube to draw with. As the ice cube melts, it will create a trail of dark marks that fade as they dry and then -- poof! -- disappear completely. For an easy-to-hold twist, you can make the ice in a plastic ice pop mold with a handle.
